Pierzynski HRs for 5th straight game, leads ChiSox

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Pinch-hitter A.J. Pierzynski tied a White Sox record by homering in his fifth consecutive game, a go-ahead, two-run drive in the seventh inning off Jason Isringhausen that led Chicago over the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 Sunday.

With the Angels ahead 2-1, Isringhausen (3-2) relieved Dan Haren and allowed a leadoff single to Dayan Viciedo. Pierzynski hit for Tyler Flowers and hit a drive just out of the reach of a leaping Mike Trout in right-center field, Pierzynski's career-high 21st homer.

Nate Jones (5-0) allowed one run in two innings, Brett Myers pitched a scoreless eighth and Addison Reed struck out two in the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.

Chicago took 2 of 3 in the weekend series and has won 9 of 12 games.
